Follow-up Comment #1:

Could you maybe elaborate on your use case? Perhaps there's something that I'm

In my opinion : the existing behavior both by `ld' and `libtool' is
appropriate. Implying `--whole-archive' for dependency libraries in with
`-export-dynamic' will prevent users from intentionally localizing symbols.

I see these flags as having distinct use cases. I'll note that, the need for
using `--whole-archive' with `ld' isn't necessarily intuitive to users, so I
see the appeal of using it in many situations - but adding additional variance
between `libtool' and `ld' does not seem justified to me.

If the intention is to export symbols which are defined in statically linked
`libtool' libraries a "convenience library" ( `noinst_' ) might be what you're
actually looking for?
